Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo

Become a light for the wild!

An illumined trail of giant animal lanterns is yours to discover at Taronga Zoo Sydney’s Lights for the Wild 2019 backed by American Express. The zoo lights up once again as a Vivid Sydney favourite, the largest festival of light, music and ideas in the southern hemisphere.

Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo will surprise and delight guests, and introduce stunning new animal light sculptures. These include 3 gorgeous and playful Sumatran tiger cubs to celebrate the birth of Kartika’s new cubs, a pride of lions in anticipation of our new African Savannah precinct which opens later this year, and a koala. Guests will also be greeted by an immersive multimedia lightshow projection-mapped on Taronga’s Heritage-listed archway, showcasing Taronga’s 10 legacy species.

Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is a ticketed precinct, with tickets on sale now.

Taronga Conservation Society Australia is a non-profit wildlife conservation organisation. All proceeds directly support our vital work in wildlife conservation in Australia and worldwide.

Thanks to American Express, the Sky Safari will operate each evening. There is a limited number of American Express Sky Pass tickets available each night and guests will need to get in early and book tickets now. Guests don’t have to be an American Express card member to purchase these special tickets – just be quick!
